I had similar problems whith lang/drscheme. It refused to build ever 
since I switched to RELENG_7.
Building it from source (version 370 and 371) wasn't succesfull at all:
first it refused to find some X includes (which are present), then it 
wouldn't finish compiling because of a coredump in mred/mzscheme (I 
don't recall which one it was). My first thought was a broken compiler, 
but using gcc34 and icc 8.1 wasn't succesfull either ;-) After that, I 
decided not to spend any more time because I didn't know what steps were 
appropriate to take...

I just did compile Drscheme 372 with a "patched" Makefile of the port:
- uncomment this line: BROKEN=         Fails to install (signal 11)
- adapt distinfo:
MD5 (drscheme/372/plt-372-src-unix.tgz) = 751217f63bc64423a29a05423f917af8
SHA256 (drscheme/372/plt-372-src-unix.tgz) = 
SIZE (drscheme/372/plt-372-src-unix.tgz) = 15267684
- make; make install

This may be not the most correct way, but it works for me.

I'm running FreeBSD 7.0-PRERELEASE as of Jan 17 2008.
